We are gathering information about terrain rendering and we are interested in using this algorithm into our engine. We looked at the paper that describes it and we are wondering about one point. How do we remove uneeded polygons for the rendering of each frame? The polys that are out of the line of site or the ones that are hidden by other polys. For example:
**MountainA**/-----\*******<----Point of View
I guess that the polygons of mountainA certainly not need to be sent to the rendering api. But how do we manage those polys in conjonction with ROAM? Is it possible to use an Octree? Are there any better algorithm than Roam?
any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks, Bob Jelly
